Brewing has best finger steaks in Idaho
This winning restaurant makes a bite sized version of the classic
While Idaho might be best known for its potatoes, spuds are hardly unique to the state. A dish you’re unlikely to find elsewhere, however, is finger steaks. According to local lore, the finger steak was born at Milo’s Torch Lounge during the 1950s. The juicy, crispy, tangy morsels–short strips of sirloin breaded and deep fried–often come in a basket with a dipping sauce or two. Popular options include cocktail sauce, fry sauce or a tangy barbecue.
Trestle Brewing Company of Ferdinand is known for their “bite size,” a variation of finger steaks local to the region. At Trestle, the steaks are made from hand-cut sirloin seasoned with a dry rub and deep fat fried to order.
